Good
A very nice explanation. The drill of flying 10ft above the runway with the wing low and nose lined up with the opposite rudder is not taught and practiced enough.

Concise and great
It is a great course and I think everyone (even a microlight pilot) needs to learn this skill, meanwhile it is a short course...

Nice refresher
Excellent course. It’s nice to see a perishable skill demonstrated so that others can get their minds wrapped around it. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then videos are priceless.

Nice refresher
A clear and easy-to-follow explanation of crosswind landing technique. The video also makes excellent use of in-flight and ground perspectives to clarify what is happening during the landing. The video was clearly produced a while ago, but the lack of computerized graphics, etc. makes everything much easier to understand and relate to.

Excellent instruction
I really enjoyed this course, I found the instruction to be fantastic and, as a student pilot, am genuinely far less scared, perhaps even excited to begin tackling some crosswind landings.

Made sense. A little more explanation of what you are doing with the rudders would be helpful.

very clear method
Gives one plausible answer to the crab vs. slip controversy on landing: first crab, then slip. I like it! Should go a long way toward precision (repeatability) on crosswind landings.

even in a low wing
I learned to fly in cessna 150s when I transitioned to a Piper Warrior which I had just bought, the guy giving me my checkride wanted me crab into the crosswind....he didn't like the wing low method...until I did one and we had a perfect landing.

Crosswind landings a snap
This video is a basic overview of proper techniques for successful crosswind landings. One thing I always remember from this is, don't push it! If it doesn't look good or feel right, go around or move on to another field as Martha said. A little inconvenience is a lot cheaper than a bent airplane and fractured People.
